2 Why Do We Care About Safety? >30,000 students/faculty/staff >1,000 research laboratories Chemical, Radiological, Biological Lasers, hazardous materials

3 INCIDENT AT DUKE UNIVERSITY Wednesday April 15, a.m. EDT Firefighters reported t the Gross Chemical Building after the blast. (WRAL- TV5 News) Chemical Explosion Rocks Duke Lab DURHAM -- A science experiment exploded in the face of a local university student late Tuesday night.

4 INCIDENT at UNC Chapel Hill Student Hurt in Explosion at UNC Lab Chapel Hill, NC Flying glass from a laboratory explosion cut a graduate student in a UNC Chemistry building on Wednesday

5 INCIDENT AT NC STATE

6 Karen Wetterhahn Wetterhahn knew that dimethylmercury was highly toxic and she took reasonable precautions; she wore safety glasses and latex gloves, and manipulated the chemical in a fume cupboard Less than a year later, she was dead. Dimethylmercury penetrated the glove and started entering her skin within 15 seconds. Today researchers wear highly resistant laminated gloves underneath a pair of long-cuffed neoprene (or other heavy duty) gloves to handle dimethylmercury.

11 Unwanted Events Avoid Situations Which Have a Negative Impact on our: People Property Environment Public Image Ability to Do Business

12 An Important Question.. Could You Unintentionally Put: Your Yourself, Your Friends Your Building, Their Building Your Research, Their Research Our University At Risk By Not Following Key Procedures?

13 How To Prevent Unwanted Events Training ( Plan, Do, Check, Act) Mgr Safety Orientation Checklist and On Line Haz Com Review CHP, Safety Plan, and Subject Matter Specific Training Follow SOPS Work Practices, Engineering Controls, PPE Know Emergency Procedures

14 DEFENSE MECHANISMS Occupational Safety and Health Council Charged by the Chancellor Institutional Biosafety Committee Hazardous Materials Committee Radiation Safety Committee Biosafety Committee Unit Safety Committees

15 Environmental Health and Safety Center Some of what we do: Biological Safety Industrial Hygiene Chemical Safety Radiation Safety Environmental Issues Business Continuity Insurance & Risk Management

16 Hazard Communication Your right to know about the chemicals that you work with in your job.

17 Four Key Parts to Hazard Communication Labels MSDS Training Written Plan

18 Routes for Chemical Exposure Inhalation Ingestion Absorption Injection

19 Labels Identity Hazard Warning Name & Address of Manufacturer If you notice a label is missing, torn, or unreadable, contact your supervisor

20 Material Safety Data Sheets Product Identification Composition Hazard Identification First Aid Fire-fighting measures Accidental-Release measures Exposure control Personal Protection Physical and Chemical properties Stability and reactivity Toxicological info Ecological info Disposal Transport Regulatory Info

21 How do I get a MSDS? Use EHSC Web Home Page

22 CHP Chemical Hygiene Plan CFR (OSHA) Must be Read by All Persons who work in a Laboratory with Chemicals Access this from A-Z menu at Environmental Health and Safety Web Page

23 Compressed Gas Cylinders Ordering Gases Materials Support Necessary Engineering Controls Storage and Handling Hazard Review See Gas Safety section of EH&S Website

24 Laboratory Safety Engineering Controls Fume Hoods, Laminar Flow Chemical Hoods, Biological Safety Cabinets Supervisor must provide training on How to operate Limitations Meaning of exhaust alarms Actions to take in the event of an emergency

25 Fume Hoods Sash and Sash Height Clutter Green Sticker Energy Conservation

26 Meets University Standard CHEMICAL HOOD INSPECTION Avg. Face Velocity lfpm Velocity Controller Setting Date Inspected / / Inspected By: This hood meets the University Standard for face velocity. Changes in hood performance are to be reported to your Principal Investigator or Supervisor, and Environmental Health and Safety at or This sign must remain posted until removed by Environmental Health and Safety. Lab Resources Available on the Internet: ( Recommended Chemical Hood Use Procedures ( factsheet/fume_hood.html)

27 A Question... Are Chemical, Biological, and Radiological Hazards the only Hazards of a Lab Environment?

28 Hazard Signs

29 Subject Specific Training Radioactive Materials and Equipment Bloodborne Pathogens Laser Safety Respirator Use Hearing Conservation Other

30 ELECTRICAL / MECHANICAL Know the equipment and energy sources that you will be using. Use guarded equipment avoid pinch pts. Use ground fault protection Use double insulated or 3-wire power tools Lockout Tagout electrical safety Obtain training on the equipment that you will be working with.

31 Electrical Hazards Control of hazardous energy NEVER remove some else s lock and tag from any machine, equipment or device NEVER try to energize or start any machine, equipment, or device while it is locked or tagged out. You must attend NCSU Lockout Tagout training courses before you apply lockout tagout.

32 Personal Protective Equipment Employees must know: When/what type PPE is necessary How to properly wear Limitations Maintenance

33 Personal Protective Equipment Employers must conduct a hazard assessment to determine the PPE needed to conduct each task safely Hazard assessments conducted for the laboratory are maintained with the safety plan Tasks completed that are not covered by the safety plan must also be assessed to determine if and what PPE is needed.

34 Proper Attire Eye protection Gloves Closed-toe, sturdy shoes Lab coat

35 Eye Protection Safety Glasses Safety Glasses with side shields Goggles Face Shield plus safety glasses

36 Lab Coat Long Sleeves Easy to remove - buttons Offers protection against solids and liquids Splash shed coat and head for shower leave majority of contamination behind

37 Goggles only Goggles and face shield
